@SethBreedlove Do you have direct experience with that? I know many hospital systems  now make a point of giving patients log-in information about their health, test results, etc. But I don't think they really bother to explain and contextualize it very well. Also to break out of anything given in the auto-pilot mode most nurses operate in, you have to make a point of getting your doctor to talk to you about what you'd prefer to skip -- like the IV plus and  daily blood test they do for all patients -- and authorize that for the staff.

I think the key here is that outcomes will be substantially better which will yield the lower costs and higher effectiveness of treatments.

I've found that analytics and patients having access to their own data helps patients to truly understand their medical diagonsis and needs.   It used be that a doctor would say "You have XYZ." and a patient just accepted that the doctor knew and he or she didn't.  Now they are starting to understand all the physiological levers and pulls that affect their health.

The data is there, although more can be harvested via IoT, maximizing value with analytics is a logical progression. I believe adaptation of analytics in healthcare is compelling to go control cost and delivery of service.

@Jessica Dr. Eric Topol is a big advocate for analytics for healthcare. The advantages of monitoring via a smartphone is one of the things he discusses in detail in The Patient Will See You Now: The Future of Medicine is in Your Hands. However, there is another school of thought, advanced by H Gilbert Welch's in his book, Less Medicine More Health: 7 Assumptions that Drive Too Much Medial Cost. He's not just concerned about the financial cost of monitoring but the emotional cost of anxiety and physical pain from exploratory procedures that introduce their own element of risk without offering much real help for a person's wellbeing. He adds a fresh perspective the question of risk/benefit ratio, drawing on his own experience as a doctor, the son of a nurse who was a member of the Hemlock society and a father who died at 60 after being diagnosed with colon cancer.
